It's Wednesday again, which means another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!
I know I usually try to give a pithy intro to our weekly installment, but I have been working 11-16 hour days for the past several weeks. It is exceedingly difficult to be pithy under such a schedule, but in honour of my workload, I give you today’s word:
- So ludicrous as to be amusing.
Synonyms: ridiculous - ludicrous - comical - funny - comic
First seen in Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice (written 1596 - 1597). The full text of the play may be found here.
